Star Wars: The Last Jedi Extended TV Spot: Kylo Ren Failed Luke Skywalker

I mean, “fail” may be a bit of an understatement here, considering that Kylo Ren went rogue on his Jedi uncle, slaughtered a bunch of trainees, and betrayed his family and the New Republic. But failed Luke Kylo did, as Yoda might say.

A new TV spot shows many of the scenes that we saw in the previous Last Jedi trailer, plus some fresh footage and dialogue. The most intriguing nugget is Rey saying to Luke, “Kylo failed you. I won’t.” Not only is this some top-level shade on Rey’s part, but it highlights the clear and intentional misdirection from the last trailer, which tried to suggest that Rey and Kylo would end up in an alliance.

The way the last trailer was put together implied that Rey was speaking to Kylo at the end when she said, “I need someone to show me my place in all this.” The trailer then cut to a shot of Kylo holding out his hand, as though he were offering assistance to Rey. But with the addition of the TV spot, you can see that Rey’s plea for help was addressed not to Kylo but to Luke as part of her “Kylo failed you” speech. Sorry, Reylo shippers.

Additional TV ads also show us different cuts of scenes we’re familiar with—though the first ad here includes an exchange between General Leia and Poe Dameron I hadn’t seen before but which I am all about. Let Leia adopt Poe as her new worthy sassy rebel child and let’s be done with it already:

Other cool stuff from the extended spot: the voiceover of Luke saying to Rey, “You’ve seen this place,” about his mystical (Porg-infested??) island, to which Rey responds, “Only in dreams.” (The ocean and island Kylo once saw in her mind, no doubt.) We also hear Luke saying, “Who are you?” with a cut to Rey—which just might imply that he really has no idea who she is, which could effectively kill those “Rey I am your father” theories. (She’s a Kenobi, okay, please leave me in peace with this theory, I’m fine.)

Did you spot anything here you hadn’t seen before?
